## X(1143) (2ND MALFATTI-RABINOWITZ POINT)

 Interactive Applet

You can move the points A, B and C (click on the point and drag it).
Press the keys “+” and “−” to zoom in or zoom out the visualization window and use the arrow keys to translate it.

You can also construct all centers related with this one (as described in ETC) using the “Run Macro Tool”. To do this, click on the icon , select the center name from the list and, then, click on the vertices A, B and C successively.

 Information from Kimberling's Encyclopedia of Triangle Centers

Trilinears           csc A tan A/4 : csc B tan B/4 : csc C tan C/4
Barycentrics    tan A/4 : tan B/4 : tan C/4
= f(a,b,c) : f(b,c,a) : f(c,a,b), where f(a,b,c) = (b + c - a)1/2[2b1/2c1/2 - (a + b + c)1/2(b + c - a)1/2]

Along each side of ABC there is a segment that is a common tangent to two of the three Malfatti circles of ABC. Let A', B', C' be the midpoints of these respective segments. Then triangle A'B'C' is perspective to ABC, and the perspector is X(1143). (Stanley Rabinowitz, #4611, 12/29/01) For coordinates, see Paul Yiu, #4615, 12/30/01, and

X(1143) lies on these lines: 8,177    174,175    558,1488

X(1143) = isotomic conjugate of X(1274)
